This lady has the kind of posh upper-class accent--- Received Pronunciation---- that not too many English people use daily anymore.
Subject: I agree
This was very cute and simple.
I wish kids could enjoy cute and simple again.
Subject: Very cute!
I watched this yesterday and it was very cute. I was born in 1990 but this kinda show is timeless. Indeed, anyone born before 1992 will love seeing a show from before TV got disgustingly "politically correct". The modern BBC could learn a lot from these old gems.
